ok so i have decided on what i want i am ordering soon my build is
CPU = i5 2500k
mobo = Asrock z68 ext 3 gen 3
PSU = corsair tx-650 v2
Ram = g.skill ripjaws 1600 2x2gb
Case = Fractal design r3
grand total is $655 AUS
website used is msy.com.au i didnt put in links because i am just wondering if i will be able to SLI 2 560Ti's with that psu.
also i will be adding 2 more fractal design silent fans 1 120mm for front intake and 1 140mm for top exhaust. what is the best setup of fans in that case?
TL R- Will my psu be able to sli 2 560ti's. What is Best setup for 4 fans in the fractal design r3. what do you think of the fractal design silent series fans.
Also, get a 4gb stick rather than dual channeling 2 x 2gb stick. It's better if you can go 8gb though.
750W is recommended for SLI on those cards. Yes, it is better to go with 1 4gb stick so you can upgrade to 8gb later. On a gaming computer 4gb will be close to used up and with new games coming out it is worth the extra $20-$30 on 8gb of ram.
I did a gaming build with PC Case Gear a couple of months ago. Very good service, very fast shipping and lots of good reviews from ppl i know in the know ..lol ... but be warned to budget the 2% credit card loading or make a bank transfer and wait for it to clear before they ship, you only find this out at the final stage of checkout. I'm in no way suggesting you don't buy from them, just a heads up, one i would have liked to have before i finalized my budget.
